Re: Patience, persistence, and a little bit of luck

Then the fun begins, waiting for delivery, hoping the right coin shows up...... I did notice the seller had a second 1891 o, very similar condition ending about an hour later that day. Not wanting to risk a mix-up, I bid that coin up a little, and won it. It actually cost me a dollar more than the 9...

Re: Patience, persistence, and a little bit of luck

Finally after looking at more than a few thousand 1891 o Morgans, this one showed up on E-bay recently. I saw it about 2 hours after it was posted and sent the seller a message right away, hoping to get a buy it now option. No luck, so I placed a small bid and then began 5 days of agony..... waiting...

Re: Patience, persistence, and a little bit of luck

Thanks for the replies.... a little bit of the story... I have been looking for this VAM for a number of years, flipping over every 1891 o to look, hoping it was the one. The obverse markers of the 9a fade out prior to getting to becoming 9b, so it is difficult to spot from an obverse photo. I had o...

Wandering the Bay during downtime

My stay at home time has led to a little extra time on the search for interesting Morgans to add to my collection. The latest one to arrive at the house was a 1921d VAM 1R (noted in the listing) Perhaps a little later die state? http://ec2-13-58-222-16.us-east-2.compute.amazonaws.com/wiki/1921-D_VAM...

Re: A Time Capsule of Prices

Interesting read.... A number of years back at a garage sale, I picked up a book by Q. David Bowers, "The Coin Dealer Newsletter, a study in Rare Coin Price Performance, 1963 - 1988" It has selected copies of the newsletter from each year, as well as many interesting articles about each years trends...

Re: I need help, with my 1924 Peace dollar

Looks like the order is 8, 8B, 8C, then 8A. But the 8B and 8C listings also mention a listing for 8D. Is there an 8D that hasn't been added to the listing page. Was 8D listed due to the extra break? Inquiring minds want to know ....
